The Actun Kabal Caves and the Great Sand Passage
The end of this tunnel had an active helicopter landing site, now overgrown with vegetation
The Chiquibul Forest has been used for jungle training by armies such as the British, thus a network of heli pads were developed for insertion and extraction of soldiers.
The sand passage is the name given to a passageway where torrential water passes through Kabal cave, bringing with it sand. This sand forms a layer on the passageway, left after the rains.
